The Pentimento Project – Origin & Ethos

Most art masterpieces have minor changes and modifications to them where the painter changed their mind part of the way through the creation process. Through time, aging or circumstance these changes become exposed and the vulnerability of the original form is on display for all to see.

People are masterpieces in their own right. Through cancer, people often feel vulnerable, exposed, weak and raw. They may feel on display and as if they constantly have to explain what is happening to them. They lose sight of who they are and become identified by their disease – along the way losing confidence and trust in their body, and their zest for life.

The Pentimento Project provides support and guidance through this vulnerable time, helping people move through this transient moment towards their new future.
